large white grub
February 16, 2010
Hi, I found this bug at my parents house in Santa Monica, CA in the cement back yard. There is not much dirt around them although the house’s foundation sits directly on very sandy soil. It looks like a witchity grub (like the ones found in Australia) but I don’t think we have those in the U.S. Can you tell me what it is? Is it some kind of larvae.

Scarab Grub

Hi Alex,
That white Scarab Grub, probably a June Beetle, looks like it is bigger than a human foot, but it is really an optical illusion.
